An act relating to pupil data.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 99, as introduced, Irwin. Statewide longitudinal data system: California Cradle-to-Career Data System.
Existing law establishes the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System, which is maintained by the State Department of Education and consists of pupil data regarding demographic, program participation, enrollment, and statewide assessments.
Existing law establishes the California Cradle-to-Career Data System Workgroup to assess, recommend, and advise about statewide data infrastructure that integrates data from state entities responsible for elementary and secondary education data, entities responsible for early learning data, segments of public higher education, private colleges and universities, state entities responsible for student financial aid, childcare providers, state labor and workforce development agencies, and state departments administering health and human services programs.
Existing law requires the Office of Planning and Research to contract with entities with expertise in managing data for specified purposes relating to the workgroup’s activities. Existing law requires those contracted entities to submit reports to the Department of Finance and the Legislature concerning the establishment of the California Cradle-to-Career Data System, as specified.
This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation that would codify recommendations in the California Cradle-to-Career Data System Legislative Report published in December 2020.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

(1) In 2019, the Legislature passed, and Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law, Senate Bill 75 (Chapter 51 of the Statutes of 2019), which established the California Cradle-to-Career Data System Act (the Act). The Act sets out requirements for the development of a statewide data infrastructure, also known as a statewide longitudinal data system.

(3) Over the course of 2020, more than 170 people from 15 state agencies and many educational institutions, research and policy organizations, and community groups worked together to design a blueprint for the California Cradle-to-Career Data System.
(b) It is intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation that would codify recommendations in the California Cradle-to-Career Data System Legislative Report published in December 2020.
